The Middle East may be making a lot of money from tourism these days, but let's not forget all the billions they managed to pull out of the ground. And so, they don't have the same appreciation for money us regular folks do.
For example, this next video shows a lion cub walking all over the engine deck of a red Porsche Carrera GT, the supercar predecessor of the 918. These things are pretty rare and very expensive, not to mention extremely famous after Paul Walker's tragic death in one. But the owner doesn't hesitate to let his little Simba cub walk all over its precious paintjob and even feeds him baby formula.

The baby lion just stepped up his game in a big way. While his brothers and sisters are locked up in a zoo, he's living like a celebrity. We wonder if Timon the meerkat and Pumba the warthog also have their own luxury vehicles.

If you really think about it, having a lion in your house is way more excessive than owning a supercar. Most Lamborghini or Ferrari owners only do about 5000 kilometers per year, so fuel bills aren't that big of a problem. But the cub will grow up into a 200 kg (440 lb) monster that devours up to 40 kilos (90 lbs) of raw meat per day.

A second hand Porsche Carrera GT usually retails for around half a million euros or $570,000. Power comes from 5.7-liter DOHC V10 engine producing a respectable 612 HP. The supercar is very light and has a reputation for being tricky to control at the limit, just like a lion.

Oh, and in case you're curious, lion cubs are actually pretty cheap. We've found various websites that sell them for around $2,000 (€1,800) or even less.
